Perth: A Scavenger Hunt

Today, one of my dear dear friends is leaving on her Paris adventure.  We gathered at her place this afternoon to wish her well, and ended up making her a list of 25 things to do and see in Europe, awarding points for each activity.

C then asked, "If I am getting points, who am I competing against?"
